Interactive Map Now Available

Brett Gerasim at the Old Livery Mercantile on North Tegner has been working on an interactive map of Wickenburg’s downtown businesses. He was kind enough to send me a link to the resulting page: http://www.oldlivery.com/wickenburgmap.htm.

Actually, my usual weekend arrival in Wickenburg today included a pleasant surprise. A herd of deer with several fawn, were right on the carport.
